Lectio Epistolae Beati Pauli Apostoli ad Romanos – Lesson from the Epistle of Blessed Paul the Apostle to the Romans
Romans 13 : 11-14
Fratres : Scientes, quia hora est jam nos de somno surgere. Nunc enim propior est nostra salus, quam cum credidimus. Nox praecessit, dies autem appropinquavit. Abjiciamus ergo opera tenebrarum, et induamur arma lucis.
Sicut in die honeste ambulemus : non in comessationibus et ebrietatibus, non in cubilibus et impudicitiis, non in contentione et aemulatione : sed induimini Dominum Jesum Christum.
Brethren, knowing the time, that it is now the hour for us to rise from our sleep. For now our salvation is nearer than what we believed. The night is past, and the day is at hand. Let us therefore cast off the works of darkness and put on the armour of light.
Let us walk honestly as in the day, not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and impurities, not in contention and envy, but all of you put on the Lord Jesus Christ.
